AWOLNATION - Here Come the Runts (10/10)

Great artists don’t abandon their original vision––they grow. Aaron Bruno does just that with Here Come the Runts. With this, his heaviest incarnation yet, Bruno maintains the chirpy, Technicolor flavor that made him famous without standing still. And that blend of instant familiarity and glittering newness pays heavy dividends, with delectable lyrics and snappy compositional twists proving ubiquitous. Although Bruno repeatedly shouts “stop that train” during the disc’s closer of that name, his latest creation is a locomotive of creativity that’s full steam ahead.
